TORONTO, June 25 /CNW/ - Asian Television Network International Limited
(ATN) (TSX-SAT), Canada's pioneer South Asian Broadcaster and Canada's largest
distributor of World Class Cricket, announces it has secured the exclusive
Canadian broadcast rights for the cricket series between West Indies & India
commencing live from Kingston, Jamaica on Friday June 26, 2009.
This series of One Day International (ODI) matches will be shown live on
CBN and ATN-Cricket Plus. The West Indies team appears ready for the
challenge, as its performance in the World Twenty20 was a dramatic improvement
from its efforts last summer in which it lost both the Wisden Trophy and ODI
series to England.
"This will bring Canadians exciting and extremely enjoyable cricket that
is taking place in prime time," said Shan Chandrasekar President & CEO of
Asian Television Network.
